Cynthia Smith, RN, BSN, CCM
My background is hospital Care Coordination at MidCoast Parkview Health which is a 92 bed community hospital. I have been a Certified Case Manager since 2008. I have ten years’ experience as a case manager in the department of Care Coordination and 10 years’ experience as the Unit Coordinator for a total of 20 years’ experience in hospital case management. I advise on complex care patients and am utilized as a resource throughout the hospital. I am a strong patient advocate for our at-risk population. I believe that case managers help assure that patients receive the right care at the right time for the right reason. I have been doing this for 20+ years and feel strongly that this position is vital for patient safety and positive sustainable outcomes.
